Platinum Pied Pipers is a Detroit-based hip hop and R&B group comprised of producer Waajeed (Robert O'Bryant), and multi-instrumentalist Saadiq (Darnell Bolden). Their music usually features a rotating and varied array of artists.
The two met through rapper Baatin in 1992. Sometime in 2000, they decided to form a duo and began releasing 12"s and mixtapes. It was their collaboration with Dwele in 2003, however, called "Ridin' High" which caught the ears of music listeners, and set the stage for a full-length album. The pair have a rather unique mixture of sounds as, although Waajeed is primarily a hip hop producer, Saadiq is a protege of Motown producer Barrett Strong, making for a finely tuned middleground. As stated in interviews, the name "Platinum Pied Pipers" was chosen at random and has no connection to the Pied Piper folk tale.
